It might be low on refrigerant, this is one cause of overheating on the compressor, and condenser. This condition will not affect cooling tho, unless it is really low. As far as making fire, it wont because compressors have a breaker switch that go off when they get too hot.

My microwave won't pop popcorn - how can I check if it needs to be serviced?


Humbly suggest 1) microwaves cannot be serviced. They either work or they do not.
If they do not, most people will discard them.
2) Please do not rush to throw this one away.
If it will heat water, it may be just fine.
Sometimes popcorn gets old and stale, and it will absorb moisture, and become un-popable.
Try the machine on a lot of different tests and see if it is really bad.
God bless your efforts.

My iron has stopped heating. should i throw it away?


well, most likely. the heating element may have burned out. if you want to get a good iron, then go to a second hand store like good will, and find an older GE iron. those things are the best Irons that my family has ever used.

Boy, thats GE for you. God, I run into this all the time with GE products, you cant find the parts half time, and when you do, their more expensive than buying a new stove. Do you still have the model number or part number? If not, a lot of the new ignitors will work as well. Part numbers WB2X9154, WB13K21, WB2X10016, and WB2X9998 will a lot of times mount right back up to an older number ignitor set-up and can be found pretty easily on Ebay so you wont have to pay that "Generally Expensive (GE)" price. Let me know if you might need any other assistance or info, and good luck.
